Memorial to honor longtime colleague and friend

The Leonard H. Axe Library at Pittsburg State University will dedicate a memorial in honor of Leon Divel at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 29. Divel, a longtime member of the library staff, retired in 2004 after 35 years at PSU. He died in 2005.

"Leon had a tremendous positive influence on students and faculty at Pittsburg State University," said Robert Walter, dean of Learning Resources. "Not only did his tenure at the University leave a lasting impact on many, he was an inspiration to others through his activities in the community and his church. His life positively touched so many that his friends wish to leave a lasting memorial to Leon on the grounds of the Library."

The memorial dedication will take place at the northwest corner of the library and a reception will follow in the library browsing area. Persons wishing to donate to memorials in Divel's name may do so through the PSU Foundation in care of Axe Library.
